Best Top Photographer Winner – Night Photography takes 1st Place

By | Night Photography | No Comments

In early March, I entered one of my photos to the Best Top Photographer contest. I entered the contest last minute, and then forgot about it. Last week I got a notice on Google+ that my photo had won the landscape category, and voting was to begin to win overall.

After a couple days of voting, it was announced that my photo had won the overall contest. I am delighted, as this was voted on by mostly other photographers. To me, that is the best reward!

I really love night photography. There is something so special about being out during the late night/early morning. It is incredibly quiet, and typically you’re alone, even in the most popular places. Astrophotography has become really popular, with a quick search you can find many tutorials.
